I really enjoyed this book. Inside its pages unfolds a wonderful story of adventure, heroism, and a triumph againts evil. This is a great book that will get you hooked into wanting more!

This book looks cool.

Loved this book, I finished it in less than two days, this book is meant for clever kids and teenages, and it feels like the author tries to say "I know you are clever children, but I'm smarter" because it's full with history, books, and museums that - too bad - most of the children our age had never heard of.

I absolutely loved this book.

interesting fantasy based on Eastern myths rather than the usual Northern European. Shows the impact that dramatic revelations can have on family life, including those who aren't included in the magic.
